|Will U Stand||Tips & Facts||Heather Gere||2014|
We wanted to share STAND with stopbullying.gov in hopes that it could be shared broadly with US educators and at the upcoming Bullying Prevention Summit in August. The Will U Stand movement was started by Charleigh Gere, a Vermont teen who wanted to encourage her peers to take a stand with one another to stop bullying. She worked with her aunt, a songwriter, to compose STAND, the Anti-Bullying anthem. The song encourages youth to be the one voice, unafraid, to help victims of bullying. To get others excited about making a difference, Charleigh invited the world to participate in a crowd-sourced music video for the anthem. Clips began pouring in from all over the US and as far fledged as Australia, Ireland, Canada and the UK. The heartfelt mashup offers a positive solution to bullying. It shows victims of bullying that they are not alone and that people care. A direct link to STAND http://www.willUstand.com/standtheanthem.php STAND is the first crowd sourced music video created specifically with a purpose to help end bullying. In addition to the anthem (which is free for anyone to use and share), educators can download free bullying prevention posters and signage from the Will You Stand website. You can learn more about the project at and http://www.willustand.com/about.php

|A Meta-Analysis of School-Based Bullying Prevention Programs' Effects on Bystander Intervention Behavior||Research||Joshua R. Polanin, Dorothy L. Espelage, & Therese D. Pigott||2012|
This meta-analysis synthesized bullying prevention programs' effectiveness at increasing bystander intervention in bullying situations. Evidence from 12 school-based programs, involving 12,874 students, indicated that overall the programs were successful (Hedges's g = .20, 95% confidence interval [CI] = .11 to .29, p = .001), with larger effects for high school (HS) samples compared to kindergarten through eighth-grade (K-8) student samples (HS effect size [ES] = 0.43, K-8 ES = 0.14; p < .05). A secondary synthesis from eight of the studies that reported empathy for the victim revealed treatment effectiveness that was positive but not significantly different from zero (g = .05, 95% CI= -.07 to .17, p = .45). Nevertheless, this meta-analysis indicated that programs increased bystander intervention both on a practical and statistically significant level. These results suggest that researchers and school administrators should consider implementing programs that focus on bystander intervention behavior supplementary to bullying prevention programs.
